Default Camber plates on stock suspension

I'm looking for a quiet set of camber plates that work with stock suspension and also don't raise the height of the front of the car? Is this possible or will all camber plates have to raise the car at least slightly in the front?

Usually, a camber plate will reduce stack height fron stock mounts. Unless there are some spacers added in. I believe most makers of plates hace top hats for larger diameter stock springs, just need to specify when ordering.

Ground Control street plates should suit your needs, and no the ride height won't be affected.

Swap your left and right strut mounts. That should net you about -2.5deg of camber.

Swapping left and right won't bind up the struts ?

Nope. Been using them as budget camber plates for years.

Use a good dry lube on everything during assembly. I've heard others complain about noise but my GC plates are quiet.

Turner also makes street (quiet) camber plates that work with the stock suspension.
